The gull was taken to a vets where it had to be put to sleep due to the extent of its injuries.

She added: “While the bird was found on an industrial estate, there are houses nearby and often children playing.
“It is very concerning that someone has not only used an airgun to cause harm to an animal but done so near a busy residential area.
“We would appeal to anyone with information about who carried out this mindless act of cruelty to contact our animal helpline on 03000 999 999 or Police Scotland on 101.”
